I saw another sighting, a lowered MKIV Silver GTI with Michighan plates.  Had the rear emblems removed and looked lowered.  Also looked to have the joey mod done to it.

  Black MK4 VR6 Jetta in my parking lot today (Sports Authority on Fowler) Had after market exhaust and rims, 18's maybe. lowered too I think. Anyway, saw the guy walking in and I hit 'em with a Fixxfest flyer.  biggrin.gif exhaust was really loud...too loud for my taste.

Then on the way home saw a VWFixx stickered JTi...you know who you are. goodjob.gif

Yeah, that'd be me, almost bone stock with the exception of a new DV and CAI. I should be getting my H&Rs and new rims soon so I'll look a whole lot better than that day.  goodjob.gif  The black Mk3 jetta happens to be my neighbor, he totaly killed that car, he placed some "VR4" stickers on the side of it... screwy.gif

Saw a silver Phaeton today.  First heading south on 4th st in north St Pete, then later as I was riding my bike home from work ( I commute by bike 3 days/wk) saw it again parked on 44th St off of 118th ave in front of a spa manufacturer. Was able to check it out pretty closely and it wasn't the W12.
